10 Things I Think about when Life is Overwhelming

Sometimes life is overwhelming. Things out of our control unexpectedly happen. Responsibilities increase. Time seems way too short. Rest is fleeting. When I find myself in one of these situations, I try to remind myself of these truths:

  1. God is still in control. My life might seem chaotic, but God’s still sovereign. 
  2. God is not worried. That’s why it’s sin for me to worry. 
  3. God can handle my burdens. His shoulders are much bigger than mine. 
  4. God loves me so much His Son died for me. That simple truth is still powerfully comforting. 
  5. God’s mercies are renewed every day. When the sun comes up, it’s a new day no matter what I face.
  6. God is still conforming me to the image of His Son. And, He uses all the craziness of life to move me in that direction.
  7. God has never let me down in the past. Like the psalmist, I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken. 
  8. God lives in me. He indwells me through His Spirit—and that miraculous truth gives me peace. 
  9. God sees the bigger picture. He knows how the seemingly disconnected puzzle pieces of my life today fit into His puzzle. 
  10. God is the story—not I. My responsibility is simply to trust Him.  

If your life is overwhelming today, I pray these words help you today.
